article imageSmart pants will tell you when you need to go to the toilet

By Owen Weldon     Oct 13, 2015 in Odd News
There are smartphones, smartwatches and now there are smart pants, which tell you ahead of time when you will need to go to the bathroom.
Triple W Japan, A Japanese company, has invented a device called Dfree. Dfree fits on your underwear and it tracks your bowel movements. The company said Dfree will come in handy for those who have fecal incontinence, or for people who need more time to find a bathroom.
Dfree was unveiled last week at CEATEC, shore for the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies, but people will need to wait until they can get their hands on the device. The DFree could end up on the market by spring of next year.
It was designed to reduce the problem of incontinence among the elderly but many people have said they see the advantages of the device.
Ryochei Ochiai, of Triple W Japan, said the company is still looking at whether it should use belts or tape to secure the device to the wearer's stomach.
By 2060, one out of every five people in Japan will be 65 or older, and the population is expected to fall below 90 million. A lot of Japanese visitors said they saw advantages of the device.
One resident of Tokyo said they thought the device would be suitable for elderly people who don't want to use diapers, but need to wear diapers.
